of the ntsb called out the pilots for an apparent break down of their air speed monitoring function. >> we have a flying pilot and two other pilots that are in the cockpit and they have a monitoring function. one of the very critical things that needs to be monitored on an approach to landing is speed. so we need to understand what was going on in the cockpit and also what was going on with the aircraft. >> reporter: investigators say the three pilots who were at the controls when the plane crashed were not given any kind of drug or alcohol test because they are foreign pilots. it is pilots if they are u.s. based they would be drug or alcohol tested. so if that was an influence, we may not know because they were not tested. reporting live in south san francisco, len ramirez kpix 5. >>> the airline pilots association is blasting the ntsb for releasing so much information so soon. the group accuses the agency of fueling, quote, wild speculation about the cause of the crash by putting out detailed flight data before investigators even finished interviewing the pilots. this was ntsb chief's re
piece ended up in san francisco bay and the ntsb has wrapped up a news conference within the hour. we go live now to san francisco for the latest. let's start with the first responders that one of the 16-year-old victims was hit by a fire truck. how was that shaking out? >> reporter: wendy, they have discussed this in two different news conferences today the first responders held a news conference a few hours ago and said they acknowledge that they had heard about this and that it had gone up the chain of command, that they were investigating it but hadn't made any determinations as to what exactly happened out there on that chaotic runway. the other mention of that was from the ntsb who said the coroner has not been able to determine cause of death on either one of those two teenage girls, whether she was, one of them was struck by a vehicle or not and whether that would be the cause of death in the eventuality. >> there's a report one of the four pilots is the least experienced in flying this 777. did the ntsb talk about that? >> reporter: they did. he's had 43 hours in that particular
giving the information that pilots have made mistakes but that's the ntsb's job. >> there were people who knew about it and that's exactly what they think. the ntsb has the power to prevent something like this from ever happening again and it's their responsibility. the question that every one wants answered is what can be done to prevent another flight that happened like flight 214. there is a disagreement over a warning system. it visually alerts pilots of large dips in air speeds but according to the chronicle, now they are saying it dates back to at least 2002 when a charter crashed in minnesota killing eight people including a u.s. senator. >>> well the asiana airlines could talk about the expansion plan. they were ready to add 46 planes to its fleet and take them from asia to the u.s. asia had been rated one of the safest airlines in the world. they should adopt a strong safety improvement strategy and that they can he can plane to customers. >>> there is no is your chris -- service on tuesday's and they have one leaving ever day of the week in the afternoon. they currently have the
of the pieces will go to washingtor analysis. (new1) today the n-t-s-b released e pictures. they show just how much debris was strewn across the runway. crews have to clean up spild jet fuel, repair lights, anx the landing surface itself. it will take more than a thousand tons of concrete to repave. then, the f-a-a will have t- certify it. here's the latest on the investigation: the n-t-s-b says the engines and automac flight controls were all wog normally. the pilot told th that flash of light he saw d not affect his vision. and, a second pilot called for a go-around in the final moments of the flight but too late. (new1) we have heard a lot about throttles, air speed and altitude. but tonight we're getting a new perspective oe crash.. and a better idea of what should have happened dg the landing. this animation shows how fl 214 came into sfo. the seco, blue image is how it "shoul the blue plane is meant to the proper flight path. but in order to make the compar, it had to be slowed down we beyond the proper speed... e speed 2-14 should have been going. there's still no sign of 21-month old d

by a few miles an hour, it was sufficient for a small. >> the ntsb told us that at 7 seconds there was a voice in the cockpit that asked to increase speed. at 4 seconds there was a device that shakes the stick which means that the aircraft is on an incipient stall. then at 1.5 seconds to go there were voices in the cockpit that said go around which is an order to go full power and take the aircraft out of danger. we know those actions were given. the question is should she have been given earlier. gregg: the answer is obviously yes. >> in terms of the outcome absolutely. but what we have to unthrough the ntsb is how we came to this position given the most of the approach -- the information we have so far tells us it seems to be fairly stable. the throttles were island and the pilots were making a steady approach. what i would say about sfo is the approach is a fairly complicated approach. the crew would have been fatigued. they would have been coming to a relatively long day and the pilot is given visual flight rules. there is visibility in excess of five miles. but most pilo
